Download Express Scribe (free player) and see if you can pull the voice file into it. nm
Download Express Scribe, it's free, when you download the voice files you will listen to....
them in Express Scribe and you can set your footpedal up. I forget where the downloaded files go, can't remember if you can put them where you want them but I would have to search for them to download to Express Scribe - maybe someone else can tell you how. It is much better than what you are doing.

You can download Express Scribe for free, but I would
suggest waiting on the foot pedal.  If you need to do voice files for testing you can using hot keys - slower, but saves you from buying something that will stay in the closet.   You may need a C-phone but I never heard of a company providing one.  Sometimes the company will provide a foot pedal too.

Not sure if it does the files you need but a quick check of their program will tell you. Google it.

This program has programmed hot keys (the F keys) to do the same things a foot pedal would. A foot pedal does make the going easier. You could try ebay or do a Google search to find a foot pedal that is within your price range.
You cannot adjust the speed in Win Media Player. Download Express Scribe free NM

So if I download Express Scribe on my laptap and then...

hook up to my home PC with gotomypc.com I should be able to play files that are on my home PC?

Thanks.  I'm having a hard time figuring this out.

You can have Express Scribe download directly for you.
Under Settings, Automatic Incoming, click Add and use the FTP info you've been given to set up. Make sure your file type is checked. Also, one complaint with this program is that it does not download .dss files.
Can you download Express Scribe and see if you can get your pedal to play through that? nm

Express Scribe is very easy. Files download, you will see them, click on one and it starts when you
press your pedal.  That simple.
Pedal won't work with Media Player, download Express Scribe. nm
Express Scribe is free.
Express Scribe is free, but I don't know if it -sm
plays those files. all you can do is try. Good luck.
Express Scribe is free and will probably play

any file format you need.   You just need to buy a foot pedal.   Express Scribe also sells pedals, you can find on e-bay, or even the equipment board here. 


Are there any other free players besides Express Scribe?

I have many problems with express scribe.  Hard to explain, but it stems from stopping and starting the recording just one time too many, and the express scribe "freezes up" for awhile.  Sometimes I have to sit and wait for 2 minutes before it will play again.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled it - no help.  This has been going on for years and I am sick of it.  Sometimes I have to reboot my computer to regain control of it.

Anyone know of any other free players out there I could try?  Thanks!

Express Scribe is a free player...

which lots of us use, just Google express scribe and you will be able to find plenty of sites ot download it from.

For the other items you might try the "classifieds" right here on MTStars, ebay or Craigs list. Good luck!

Right click on the file and choose Open With... Express Scribe nm
Couldnt get Express scribe setup to play dss file
Express scribe is FREE and works great!
Express Scribe is free. You need to purchase a license
Anybody know of any free foot pedal/transcription software besides Express Scribe? TIA. nm
Yes, I agree. Free is a good price and Express Scribe will work just fine for you. (nm)
Abacus is not free. It is $20 but worth it. You can download a trial version free which does not h
I have used this for years and have compared to Sylvan, Word, and MP Count, etc. When you have it set to count every character, bold, shift, tab, etc. It is great and always higher than the others. Now if you are wanting gross lines like in Word then no it won't be as high because Word counts blanks lines and Abacus counts a line only if there is a character on it. There is also two places to check for it to count the Headers/Footers. If you have the FREE version then it must be the trial or a very old version so you don't have all the features and functions.
I think it is the same type of file, so rename it and replace your autocorrect file with your DQS us
I use scribe.net and then download
it onto express scribe. It works well.
Thank you! She can't download the file to sm
use the player from there, right? She needs the actual disk in order for this to work correctly? Sorry for all the questions. I'm just not familiar w/it and didn't find an actual download for the ability to play the files.

I am having trouble downloading a PC-Dart dictation into express scribe... any suggestions?
Need help with FTP. Trying to download file from FTP site -sm
and not having much luck.  If I right click on the file name and try to save to a folder it tells me I can't do that.  If I just double click on the file name it downloads the file but to Windows Media and then from there I can't get the file to a folder and into Express Scribe.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Not a computer whiz and I am so frustrated.  Thanks.
If you got the file there, then you should be able to download ExpressScribe and load it into
Download the file from FTP to your hard drive.
Then hit Load button, find where you saved the file on your hard drive and Load. Now, you're in business.
Download the voice file to your computer.
Then open ES and load it in. If it's not a supported file format, you can get a program like Switch to convert it to a supported format.
You can't download it free any more. You have to buy it now. NM
Express Scribe
I have been using it for almost 3 years. I have been very happy with it and not had any problems.
Express Scribe
On the voice files that you have in the program, just click on them and then there should be a button to click on that says Done. This should remove the files. Good luck!
Express scribe
Do you know if there is a hot key or Function key for building macros or speed type in Express scribe?
Express Scribe

Is there a setting in Express Scribe where when you let up on the pedal it rewinds?  Is it in options somewhere?



express scribe
I use express scribe for transcription.  I have been able to download files just fine with it for months, but now when I down load files it only gives me the option to save the file and does not load it into express scribe.  These are the same type files that always worked before.  Any ideas as to why or how to correct the problem?  Thanks in advance!
express scribe
Try deleting the express scribe and reinstalling it.
Express Scribe
Mine did exactly the same thing ONLY in reverse. I had to manually move it into Express Scribe from the voice files; then all of a sudden it started to load into Express Scribe immediately. I talked to the gal I was working with and she said this had happened to her also. Can't figure it out but it works OK now.
Express Scribe
Open Express Scribe,  one click on "settings", scroll down and click on "pedal and hot keys".  Foot Pedal Control:  Make sure "Use Foot Pedal Playback Control" is checked.  Make sure your port is "VEC Pedals USB.  Make sure the No. is "3-pedals".  Then click on "Foot Pedal Control Setup Wizard" and follow instructions exactly.  This is where I made my mistake.  I didn't follow the wizard's exact instructions.  Sounds complicated but absolutely is not.  Once you do this you should be good to go.

I have used infinity just to test out express scribe itself after I loaded it. Does anyone actually use this program for their work? If so, where can I get some work in this program? Have it downloaded but have not used it yet. I believe it's supposed to be good for testing, etc. for different companies.
Try Express Scribe
software. You will likely also need the file VECUSB.exe in order for the software to recognize the pedal, but all of it is free, and it works with lots of different sound files.
Good luck!
Express Scribe
I find it works well with downloading directly from FTP. Have done it for about 2 years. Also MP count is really nice line counting software. It used to be free, but I think you have to pay to get it now. I still use the free version.
